Launched over a decade ago, the Hampshire Health Record (HHR) is a computer system used in the NHS. It safely shares important information about a patient with those treating them. This leads to faster and more accurate care.
The Hampshire Health Record shows the medication you are currently taking, your allergies, test results and other critical medical and care information. Health and care staff can access your information if they have your permission to do so.
Hampshire Health Record is supported and run by South Central and West Commissioning Support Unit, which is an NHS body and part of NHS England. HHR is funded exclusively by the NHS and social care, and does not receive any commercial sponsorship of any kind.
The Hampshire Health Record is currently supported with data supplied by many NHS organisations in the South:
- North East Hampshire CCG
- South East Hampshire CCG
- West Hampshire CCG
- North Hampshire CCG
- Fareham and Gosport CCG
- Portsmouth CCG
- Southampton CCG
- Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust
- Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust
- Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust
- Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital Trust
- Southern Health Foundation Trust
- Solent Health Trust
- Hampshire County Council
In addition, many healthcare organisations actively use this information to treat patients. These include:
- South Central Ambulance Service
- HDOCS – the GP out-of-hours service covering South Hampshire
- NHUC, the GP out-of-hours service for North Hampshire
- Frimley Park Hospital
The future of HHR
HHR has also been chosen as a critical piece of the Vanguard project in North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG (NEHF). NEHF are piloting a ‘Happy, healthy at home’ programme which will link up health and social care professionals when treating particularly vulnerable or complex patients.
At present, 80% of the GP practices within the CCGs above are signed up to HHR. If you are looking to safely share patient data in your area and would like to know more about the Hampshire Health Record, please get in touch.
